This is the form of raw honey that’s closest to the way the bees make it. Raw honey is extracted by spinning the honeycomb in a centrifuge. When taken directly from the hive, the honey is still warm and flows easily. When I kept bees, I used an old-fashioned honey extractor that required hand cranking. It was a lot of work, but the results were well worth the effort.
Raw honey is amber colored and has traces of pollen and wax. By consuming local raw honey, you get a homeopathic dose of pollens from your area that helps immunize against allergies.
Certified organic raw, unfiltered honey is the form I recommend for health.
The antibacterial action of raw honey is thought to be from hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). A powerful antimicrobial, H2O2 can kill nearly all germs, as well as some cancer cells, on contact. When honey comes in contact with a wound, an enzyme called glucose oxidase—a gift from the bees—activates the release of H2O2. There are likely undiscovered interactions that occur when honey is used to treat wounds, but from what we know, medicinal honey can even kill antibiotic-resistant bacteria like MRSA.
Honey is hydroscopic. It pulls water away from an infected wound by osmosis. Dryer wounds heal faster. But there’s more to it: honey also pulls lymph fluid to the wound, making for a balanced healing environment.
It also has a low pH of between 3 and 4, making it acidic. Bacteria thrive in neutral or slightly alkaline environments. I know this may be contrary to the pro-alkaline theory, but scientifically true and clinically proven understanding trumps trendy ideas. If you have a non-healing wound, try honey. It’s a “good” acid.
In addition, honey contains phytochemicals important for health. Carotenoids, phytosterols, phenolics, peptides, and other plant chemicals are found in honey. All of these are important for human health and many have healing properties. Many also signal the body’s immune cells to release active immune regulating substances called cytokines. Certain cytokines have anti-inflammatory activity.
Some wild honeys have been tested for anti-tumor activity. Honey can also induce detoxification enzymes that protect against cancer and cardiovascular disease. Many honey phytochemicals exert a synergistic antioxidant effect.
Fir Honey comes from the Secretions of Aphids and Scale insects that infest the fir trees. It is rich in minerals potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and iron too. Pine honey has low content of sugar so does not crystallized. The flavor is slightly spicy and reminiscent of toffee, for those who want a honey that is not too sweet.
Honeydew honey is a sugary liquid secreted by insects such as aphids while sucking the plant sap. This sugary liquid is collected by honeybees and converted in to strong dark colored honeydew honey. It is also known as Pine honey, Fir honey or Forest honey. Few varieties are named after the plant source from which the bees collect the honeydew . Composition, properties and benefits of honeydew honey are different compared to honey derived from nectar of flowers.
